McDonald's restaurant agrees to settlement over employee's "Faggots" comment

The American Civil Liberties Union announced today that McDonald's has agreed to a cash settlement and diversity training for management at its Louisville-area restaurants. The incident happened on July 26, 2008 when employee's of a McDonald's restaurant hurled gay slurs at a group of gay patrons ordering lunch. They asked to speak with a manager after an employee called them "faggot". When they did other employee's began calling one of them a "cocksucker" and "bitch." It must be noted that the only reason this suit could have been brought is the fact that Louisville law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
